The calendar may say mid-November, the Thanksgiving holiday may be approaching, and temperatures in your area may be heading downward, but you can combat that by registering for the 2019 Woodworking Industry Conference (WIC)! WIC 2019 will be held April 2-5, 2019, at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, in Amelia Island, Florida.
For more than 30 years, WMIA and the Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA) have jointly sponsored WIC. WIC offers multiple chances for you to connect with woodworking machinery importers, distributors, manufacturers, suppliers, and educators. Whether you’re looking to expand your distributor network, identify new machine lines to sell, or understand what is on the horizon in the industry, WIC provides the perfect forum, in a relaxed, non-competitive setting.
It’s not too early to start thinking about all the conference has to offer, from business development opportunities like the always-popular contact tables and multiple chances to network, to activities like golf, pickleball, and volleyball tournaments, and the annual 5K Run/Walk, all on spectacular Amelia Island.
To make your hotel reservations, use the WIC 2019 online link to take advantage of the discounted $249/night rate. You may also call the hotel at 904-261-6161 and reference “Woodworking Industry Conference 2019” or “WIC2019.” (You also have options to upgrade your room to an oceanfront villa for a higher rate.) Reservations must be made no later than February 28, 2019, although the discounted rate is only available as long as rooms are!!
